Emerging from the live performance hiatus dictated by the Covid-19 pandemic, Moving into Dance Trust is proud to announce they will be back on stage with Sunnyboy Motau’s work, We are Still Marching.  Using a grant from the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture’s Mzansi Golden Economy, Moving into Dance Trust will perform nationally with Motau’s tour de force.

Originally commissioned by The Playhouse in 2016, We are Still Marching explores the struggles faced by women in Southern Africa from the apartheid era until present day. It is a reminder of incidents such as the Women's March of 1956, the bus boycott and the recent mass campaigns: #FeesMustFall, #metoo and #thetotalshutdown highlighting the fact that even 24 years after the first democratic elections in South Africa, the struggle continues and women are still marching.

The first leg of the tour kicks off at the South African State Theatre from February 10 to 12, 2022. Before heading off to KZN for a run at the Playhouse from February 17 to 19. The tour ends with performances in Makhanda (Grahamstown) at the Guy Butler Theatre on February 24 and 25.

We are Still Marching runs in the Playhouse Drama from February 17 to 19, 2022, with shows at 19h00. Booking is through Webtickets.
